Faction token

From Wowpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Almost every time Blizzard introduced a new faction prior to Wrath of the Lich King, they introduced new faction tokens that are used as money to purchase items, or quest objects that are turned in to increase reputation. Those without the patience to grind a single faction exclusively often end up allocating many bag slots to store left-over tokens for when they resume the grind. In cataloging the astounding diversity of these tokens, we can come to grip with the bag-pocalypse confronting the packrats in the community.

This page is for items which have no use other than as faction currency or repeatable reputation quests.

Wrath of the Lich King

Blizzard seems to have realized the absurdity of the token situation with the release of Wrath. Almost all grinds revolve around daily quests or tabards, and almost every faction currency is in a currency tab instead of taking bag space.

These were used for Argent Dawn reputation quests prior to Cataclysm. When the quests were removed, many of the associated items were either deprecated or outright removed. Others remained unchanged, but no longer serve a purpose.
